The Understated Cake

“Less is more” is definitely an ethos that carries true around here. Lately I’ve been seeing cakes, which usually trend on the side of elaborate and OTT, embracing this old adage. Cakes that look like cakes, cakes that look delectable, not a statuette.

They have imperfections, lines of buttercream that naturally form around the cake, scattered with fresh, edible flowers.

Yes, these cakes are understated and totally underestimated because in their simplicity lies their beauty- their embracing of the humble but delicious cake.

To achieve an impact, group a few of them together to spoil your guests with an array of flavours and cakes that are easy on the eye (and tastebuds!)
